Blog   /   Social

In what may be its most consequential move ever, Twitter today announced GIF support on twitter.com and Android/iOS apps (through a GIFful tweet, naturally!).

GIFs (pronounced like Jif, the peanut butter brand) are short animated graphics that can really punch-up sharable content. If a picture’s worth 1000 words, a GIF must be worth much more than 140 characters. WordPress, Tumblr, Instagram, LiveJournal and now Twitter all support GIFs, and the list is by no means complete.

The Twitterverse celebrated the news the obvious (best) way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favourite celebration tweets:

We’re predicting a new hashtag: #yourmovefacebook
